The one-and-only, record-setting 1988 Callaway Sledgehammer was up for auction recently on Bring-a-Trailer. The auction ended and on May 23, 2021, with a high bid of $500,000, but it did not meet the reserve.

In 2014 at the Mecum Kissimmee auction, the high bid was $600,000 and did not sell. It's estimated value at that time was $750,000 to $1,000,000. We will keep you posted in the future as to…

Chevrolet produced a lot of 1956 Corvette advertisements. Today on our blog we are taking a look back at some of these advertisements.

The Corvette transmission choices were split by almost 50-50 between autos and 3-speed manual units.

Before we look at our 1957 Corvette Magazine Ads, we also want to share a little trivia.  This comes from our Vette Vues Magazine column “Rear Vues” where we feature Corvette Magazine Ads from the Ladd B. Chase Collection. In 1957, there were massive promotional campaigns from Ford Motor Company. In magazine ads, they announced “E-Day” in which a new car was going to be introduced. This would take place on September 4, 1957. 2.5 million Americans poured into dealerships around the country. “E-Day” was the debut of the 1958 model year Edsel. Enthusiasm was high! In the first year, 63,110 Edsels were sold in the United States; an additional 4,935 units were sold in Canada (to put it in perspective-Chevrolet produced 6,339 1957 Corvettes). The Edsel was sold through a new…

From Vette Vues Magazine's Rear Vues Collection: 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Magazine Ads 1962 was GM's peak and it was producing 51 percent of all the cars in the U.S. Before we look at the 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Magazine Ads lets look at some of the details about this model year. The 1962 model year was the last of the solid-rear-axle cars produced before new Split Window '63 Sting Ray. It marked the first year for the 327 engine, both of which place it in a unique position. Other than the new V-8 engine, however, the '62 was largely a carryover--as outgoing model series tend to be. All the Corvettes were convertibles with the base price of $4,038. There were 14,531 produced that model year. The base price included the 327ci,…
